“"The WTA doesn't test for roids,"

Your words, which you yourself have now contradicted in two posts.”

“What part of a lax, nearly nonexistent policy don't you understand? Tennis isn't interested catching steroid abuse, PERIOD.”

“Nonsense. Both the WTA and ATP test for steroids regularly - they have to in order for tennis to qualify as an Olympic sport. Doesn't mean everone who uses gets caught, but you should at least know wtf you're talking about.”

Richard Rafter on May 31, 2014 at 21:08:44

“Actually it's VERY IRREGULARLY, according to ESPN their testing policy is a joke.
The Olympics do their own testing but don't let the facts get in your way. Both Roger Federer and Andy Murray have complained publicly about the lack of testing in Tennis.”

“No, that was in the show as well.

Certainly, he'd done other awful things, but his character was starting to come to grips with that. Putting someone one a rehabilitative story arc, then them detour into rape, is bound to cause some consternation.”

LittleBird89 on Apr 24, 2014 at 18:05:12

“*Spoiler alert in the last sentence* I can also see how the arc they created, with the tension between Jaime and Cersei, would have led to it. They really didn't have much choice after Cersei turned from him. Just looking from Jaime's perspective, he's always had access to Cersei, and only Cersei. They have been companions and lovers their entire lives. When he was captured he thought only of fighting his way back to her. I was disappointed in the show when he had arrived to find her cooled toward him, and actually resentful that he had "taken so long", even after he had been abducted multiple times and lost his most prized possession. Not to say that anyone deserves rape, but if someone did it would be that hateful *female dog* Cersei. In my opinion, I guess much like most rapes, Jaime was taking what he thought was rightfully his. And really, other than Joffrey, Cersei is the worst person in that world. Guess now that he's gone she can take the title. I hope she goes crazy on the show just like in the books.”

“I wonder if part of the reason is that previously, the horrible things were done by identifiably horrible people, Jamie, on the other hand, was someone we were starting to sympathize with.”

jerkzilla on Apr 27, 2014 at 16:09:27

“But that's really on those people who suddenly wanted Jaime to become the hero, isn't it?”

kokoyumyum2 on Apr 23, 2014 at 17:52:23

“But he is a horrible person who killed the king he was sworn to protect, threw Bran Stark to what he hoped was his death, killed as many as he could, has had sex with his sister since they were children and cuckolded the king he put on the throne with his and his sister's children, , etc etc...”

carmenalex on Apr 23, 2014 at 13:24:16

“But thats what the book and show is about...moral ambiguity. Jamie's character is in the books and in the show, a morally ambiguous character.”

DRaymond on Apr 23, 2014 at 13:05:35

“Better not get too used to anybody then.  Pretty much everybody is identifiably horrible.”

mirageburbank on Apr 22, 2014 at 18:03:07

“You are right. Even after throwing a child off of a building, I was beginning to soften up to him. In the book, as Martin alluded to, it was quite different. I think a bigger issue was Jamie had no love at all for Jefforey. Although that may have been one of his enduring qualities.”

“Probably best to stop sympathizing with anyone in this show. You're just setting yourself up for disappointment.”

“"can't wear her head gear properly,"

And if what's proper or professional is designated in a way that makes it harder for some people than others, regardless of whether it serves a purpose? If we decided that a hat "properly worn" is one that sits up away from one's skull so as to emphasize the size and shape of the head - say, the way a hat would be held up by an afro - flat-haired white girls like me and bald men everywhere, would have a hard time meeting the criteria. It's not enough that the standards apply equally to everyone. They need to impact everyone equally (unless there's a legitimate reason for them not to).”

“Lesbians don't sleep with men, either, but that didn't stop some of the women I knew in college from claiming to be "lesbians for political reasons" despite actually being attracted to guys. Unfortunately, like yoga, or "gluten-free" veganism has become prominent enough to attract a fad-fringe: people who claim to be, or identify with it, but who don't truly practice it.”

“For what it's worth, the GOP in Massachusetts has long been way (WAY) more socially liberal than the national clan. Former governors Weld and Cellucci were actually very good for the LGB community here ("T" wasn't part of the equation yet). Weld created the Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth way back in 1992 and in 1993 he signed a gay and lesbian student's rights bill. Tea Party fruitcakery is a very recent development here. (I'm a left-of-Ted Democrat myself, but I understand the appeal)”
